THIS stunning garden adds a huge splash of colour to a Huddersfield village.
It was one of around a dozen gardens opened as part of Emley Open Gardens a few weeks ago, but its owner has left it just as it is for now.
It was taken by Emley couple Deborah and Wayne Tullett on a Galaxy Samsung 2 mobile phone.
The couple have two children, 13-year-old Rebecca and 10-year-old Luke. Deborah is a keen amateur photographer, who usually has her Nikon D5000 with her.
This Emley garden on Glebe Close between Upper Lane and School Lane has a patriotic feel to it and was specially designed, planted and grown to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Deborah added: “This gentleman always has an immaculate planted out garden and this is a superb design. It is in his front garden so you can just drive past to see it and he grows all the plants and flowers up himself pretty much in his back garden where he has a greenhouse.
“He changes the theme around four times a year. I don’t know how he does it.”
Emley Open Gardens weekend is staged every two years to raise money for St Michael’s Church in the village.
This year around 500 people visited over the two days with some travelling from as far as Durham, Nottingham and Manchester to view the gardens and raise a total of £2,155 towards renovation work at the church.
